    was it not 0.6666 x 100 because 2x10 to the 8 / 3 x 10 6 or whatever is surely gonna be higher that 0.67 % thats less than 1%? i thought 0.66667 = 66.7 out of 100 which is 66.7% isnt it?

    Someone said to me it said animals not plants, is this true?
    It did say animals, for example, i put Stonefly Nymphs as they were indicators of aerobic water.

    Think about it:
    10 to the 6 out of 10 to the 8 is about 1%
    And this was 2 x 10^6 / 3 x 10^8 so it's gonna be 2/3 of 1%... Which is 0.67

    Edit: Also, not being funny, but if 2/3 of everyone who got malaria died of it I reckon there'd be less people going to malaria infested countries ;-)

    Not really connected, but does anyone have any idea what the grade boundaries might be for the exam? I know they change but any idea at all would be a good confidence boost / destroyer. haha

    I got 66.6% for the malaria question because I figured that 0.6% of all people infected with malaria dying was way too low to be correct.
    It asked for it as a percentage, so shouldn't you have multiplied by 100, to get 60%? That's what I put.
